Johann Sebastian Bach: Johannespassion BWV 245

«Humanity is fascinating, and if you are truly interested in it, it becomes much more fascinating yet». In keeping with this artistic credo, Peter Sellars created a moving staging of Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. John Passion in 2014. It will be revived on the podium of the Grand Auditorium on April 4. Featuring high-carat performers such as soprano Camilla Tilling and baritone Christian Gerhaher, the work will be conducted by Sir Simon Rattle and promises a whole new experience, pointing to a place full of emotion and beyond all spirituality, a place where only art endures. Peter Sellars discusses his work as part of an Artist talk at 7:15 pm.

 REMARQUE: C’est avec regret que nous vous annonçons le désistement de Magdalena Kožená et Christian Gerhaher pour des raisons de santé dans la Johannespassion BWV 245 de Johann Sebastian Bach avec l’Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment à la Philharmonie Luxembourg, ainsi que sur l’ensemble de la tournée prévue sous la direction de Sir Simon Rattle. Nous tenons à remercier la mezzo-soprano Christine Rice et le baryton Georg Nigl d’avoir accepté de les remplacer si promptement afin de permettre à la mise en scène de Peter Sellars de rester inchangée pour la représentation de cette Johannespassion.
